OCC Cosmetics: Technoir


Hey, Everyone!

For today's makeup look I wanted to do a deep and moody smoky eye, something blue and thoughtful (seems fitting for me at the moment).

I wanted a smoky eye with a little flair and edginess to it. Something dazzling and mysterious. So, for this look, I'm using one of my favorite shadows from OCC Cosmetics. It's a deep and faceted sultry blue called Technoir, and it makes for the best smoky eye regardless of eye color and skin tone (because there are no rules, actually 😉 ).

So whether you are going out with the girls, having a fancy dinner out, or sitting at home post break-up drinking boxed wine and eating sleeves of girl scout cookies, I got you.
This look will suit almost any occasion. 👍

Here's the look, I hope you like it. :)






EYES:

♥ UDPP
♥ Colourpop Shadow in "Baby T" (deep matte blue) as base to lid and lower lash line
♥ OCC Cosmetics "Technoir" to lid and lower lash and waterline

♥ Marylin Miglin Shadow in "Modelite" (matte vanilla) from brow to crease
♥ Nyx Cosmetics Shadow in "Smoke and Mirrors" (sparkly silver grey) to crease
♥ Sugarpill Shadow "Bulletproof" (deep matte black) to outer corner
♥ Black Eyeliner
♥ Black Mascara
♥ Red Cherry Lashes in 107's 




FOUNDATION & BLUSH:

♥ Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
♥ Maybelline Master Conceal
♥ L'Oreal Perfect Match Powder
♥ Nyx Blush in "Amber"

 
LIPS:
 (My favorite nude lip combo of all time and forever!)

♥ Milani Pencil in "Natural"
♥ Nyx Round Lipstick in "Ceto"
♥ Nyx Round Gloss in "Kiss"



There you have it. A perfectly moody and blue smoky eye. ♥
Have you tried any OCC shadows?? They are amazing... you should. You really should.

And don't eat too many cookies (note to self...)

Thank you for stopping by ♥ I truly love it when you do!!

ColourPop "Mile High" Shadow Kit

Hey, Everyone!

I'm back this week playing with an awesome Shadow Kit I recently picked up from ColourPop.  I couldn't resist grabbing the Mile High collection with it's assortment of edgy neutrals, dazzling metallics, and sultry sparkles. SOLD! You'll also notice that it has shadows of every finish; matte, satin, and glitter! How could I live without it? I COULD NOT DO IT.

I've been playing with these shadows a lot lately, and I can come up with some extremely easy and wearable combos! BUT, for this look, I wanted to do something a little more dramatic... a little more flirty...
So why not do a sultry smoky eye?
Good thinking...🔥

I hope you like the look 💋







EYES:

♥ UDPP
♥ Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Yogurt to lid and lower lash line
♥ ColourPop Shadow "Nillionaire" to lid and crease
♥ ColourPop Shadow "La La" from crease to brow, gently blended out
♥ ColourPop Shadow "Mittens" to outer V and crease
♥ ColourPop Shadow "So Quiche" to lower lash line
♥ Ulta Shadow in "Naked" (matte vanilla) under brow bone as highlight
♥ Black Eyeliner to lash and water line
♥ Black Mascara
♥ Red Cherry Lashes in 605's


FOUNDATION & BLUSH

♥ Maybelline Master Conceal
♥ L'Oreal Perfect Match Powder
♥ Ulta Blush in "After Glow"


LIPS:

♥ Nyx Round Lipstick in "Ceto"
♥ Nyx Round Lip Gloss "Golden Prune"


There you have it! I REALLY love the textures of ColourPop shadows- they are workable and blend flawlessly. Not to mention the shades are stunning and bold! 💘

Have you tried ColourPop shadows??  What do YOU think?

Inspired Makeup: Celestial Star

Hey, Everyone!

I'm back this week posting a fun makeup look that is inspired by a badass lippie that I recently picked up. It's bold, it's metallic, it's super sparkly, and it's blue. 💙

I LOVE when makeup brands create products that are otherworldly! It's the perfect inspiration for me to use my imagination and get creative. The only rule I live by when it comes to makeup is to experiment and have fun!

For this look, I really wanted to emphasize the bold lip, so I kept the eyes very neutral.  I added a metallic silver shadow to my lower lash line, and some other adornments for flair. 😉

I hope you like the look! 💋




 EYES:

♥ UDPP
♥ Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Yogurt to lid
♥ Nyx Shadow in Pixie (shimmery champagne) to lid
♥ Nyx Shadow in Immaculate (soft matte vanilla) from brow to crease
♥ Nyx Shadow in Top Notch (deep brown) to outer V and crease  
♥ Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Pots and Pans (silver) to lower lash line
♥ Sugarpill Loose Shadow in Tiara (silver) to lower lash line
♥ Black eyeliner to lash and waterline 
♥ Red Cherry lashes 747L's
♥ Clear crystal rhinestones to accent 😍


FOUNDATION & BLUSH:

♥ Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
♥ Maybelline Master Conceal
♥ L'Oreal Perfect Match Powder
♥ Nyx Blush in Dusty Rose 


LIPS:

♥ Nyx Cosmic Metals Lip Cream in Celestial Star 




I am really loving this bold color! It's so metallic and pigmented, it definitely demands attention. 😉

Have you been wearing any bold lip colors this season??

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I truly love it when you do! 💘
Best wishes and have a wonderful week!


xoxo,
Colleen
